The #1 Thing You Can Do Is To Find A Job You Love

The #1 Thing You Can Do Is To Find A Job You Love…

A few weeks ago I let everyone know that I received a promotion at my company.  I am no longer working in marketing sales, but have been promoted to more of a sales training position.  The great thing about my job now is I am still able to work in the field calling on clients, but now I do it with other reps helping them fine-tune their skills.

Here’s the great thing about my career…I LOVE IT!

When you work in marketing you are constantly chasing the next new client which doesn’t leave a lot of time for celebrating victories.  In my new role I am able to help account execs improve their skill set and seeing them find new success is incredibly rewarding for me.  Yesterday one of the reps smiled after getting 2 new appointments via cold calling and her excitement added fuel to my fire.

My job does require quite a bit of travel, but I am adjusting to the change.  The toughest thing is balancing my new eating regimen while I’m on the road.  So to help me with this, I have bought a nice cooler which I take with me to carry my essentials like vegan, GF mayo and mustard, chicken breast, my bread, GF cereal, veggie chips, etc.  This way I can make sandwiches for lunch and take with me to each property.

All-in-all things are coming along and I am loving it.  I have always said there is not enough time in life to work a job you hate and I still believe it.  If you hate your job, why put yourself through that torture?  I understand some people work jobs they hate because of the money, but there are other companies that pay equal to that you might like.

Don’t sell yourself short.  If you hate your job, then update your resume and find a company for which you can enjoy working.  Sometimes we trap ourselves in thinking we can’t do better; and that simply isn’t true.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    • Many people do settle, but why? I believe people begin to accept “less than” as the norm. They begin to feel as though there’s nothing better out there. And that simply isn’t the truth.

  1. Congrats Danny and way to stick to your new regimen.

    I see both sides of the coin because for most of our adult lives my husband and I have settled because the money is enough…not exceptional, but enough and it’s scary to give that up. Our son has ONE more semester of college left and I think that means some big changes are on the horizon for my husband. Good ones! 😉
    I’m currently looking for work but I’m committed to finding something I actually want. I don’t want to settle.
    But flip the coin again…I can do that because my husband is currently settling.

    See what I mean?

      • It really does depend so much on the situation. My husband, for instance, can’t look for a job in his industry because it is small and tight-knit so his boss would know immediately. Not a good idea. 😉
        He has to look outside that profession or be prepared to lose the job he has.
        Like most things in life, it takes the perfect timing to pull off.
        ps…my husband doesn’t HATE his job so I do understand what you’re saying.
